Me, me. I'd been thinking of buying or building a table. I'm in Adelaide but can come around over the weekend to collect.

No worries Neil, If you want it i'll hold onto it for you so no stress in urgent pickup (unless you want to). Like I said need a bit of TLC but should come up alright.

Gee that looks fancy!

 

Got a table with a cutout for a Komado thats currently out in  the yard somewhat neglected. Requires a bit of a spruce up but should come up ok. Price is a 6 pack for anyone whos interested.

 

good on you mate, thats a very generous offer. I did look at one of those and would have grabbed on if i went the standard joe, but dont think they make them for the big joe, though could knock one up easily enough...just needs to be able to hold the weight

Bloody brilliant service from smart fire and love the sprayer case to keep everything safe and tidy

 

will be installing it on the kamado tomorrow and give it a test run before doing an overnight cook

@JohnA my son was looking over my shoulder at my phone the other day and saw your tomahawk steak. 

He’s only 8 and was very impressed. 😂

A lot of you would have heard about kosher salt and the benefits it has with its particular grain size allowing it to gently dissolve over the meat rather than clumping but personally have found it a little difficult to find locally and when you do it's usually overpriced so here is a great substitute thats cheap as. Available at some butchers and meat wholesalers is flossy salt and it's only about $15/20kg a bag. Really good stuff any WAY better than most other salt you find in supermarkets.

 

I like to go one step further and cold smoke it but if you see it pick some up and give it a try.

I always thought Kosher salt is just normal Maldon-like salt. (sea salt flakes etc).

 

To me the name is incorrect, they call it Koshering Salt as it is supposed to remove the blood from the meat - but that is incorrect for the most part as there is no blood in fillet steaks and the like (aka muscle) only myoglobin, yes it is red and looks like blood but it isn't.

Agree - tended to be an Americanism

Agreed Rockford regarding the name. People say its less salty than regular table salt but that has to do with the slightly bigger crystals so a TBSP of kosher will contain less salt than a TBSP of table salt due to the air gaps between the larger pieces.

 

For me I like it (and as mentioned flossy salt is a great substitute) as it is not iodized and its larger crystal size matches better with the pepper I use (#16 mesh) creating a more even distribution when applying.

I know times have moved on and this is no rare GT Ford either but I found a barn find 2012 original Weber kettle. 

Love cooking on these when doing a family BBQ. I have a Family Q but there’s no coals, no smoke. (In fact I have 5 BBQs now 😳

Anyway it has the hinged grill. The baskets and the indented fire plate. 

Score!

You guys are hard core in this thread, and I love it.

Speaking of Weber, cooked up two Chickens in my battered half rusted one !,😟

 - one with a Piri Piri homemade marinade, Garlic, Oregano, Lemon juice and zest, Chilli flakes, Smoked Paprika, salt and pepper plus extra virgin olive oil. 

 

Other stuffed with lemon wedges, Thyme plus Olive oil,  salt and pepper. 

 

Finished cook with smoking Hickory chips.

Came up a treat!

A quick basic question for Kamado Joe users, when in use do you leave the ash scoop (little shovel) in place or remove?
